New groundbreaking technology for effective treatment of bruxism (tooth grinding). Grindcare uses bio-feedback to train the sub-conscious brain to prevent muscle hyperactivity associated with tooth grinding and clenching.
Each time a patient begins to grind their teeth, Grindcare delivers a tiny electrical impulse within 0.4 seconds, which over a period of eight weeks can reduce the effects of bruxism by up to 80%. This treatment or “training” is all done during sleep without waking the Patient. Grindcare also records grinding activity making it an extremely useful diagnostic tool. Despite exhibiting obvious tell tale signs of bruxism and reporting the classic symptoms of waking with jaw ache or headaches, many Patients find it difficult to accept that they clench or grind their teeth during sleep or realise that their symptoms can be associated with this nocturnal activity.
